  1. I guess the goodwill was the "thank you" after they took My money
  2. I think the "good will" was thank you when they took my money.
  3. no goodwill...whatever that is....I crossed the ine at 36K so I'm stuck with it, they did give me 30 dollars off for being a retired vet..lol
  4. after getting the lights to go out and everything looked good,drove it a few miles..left turn..lights/message back on...took it to the dealer and after 2 hours of troubleshooting wires,as they said, found out a sensor is intermittent and will cost 400 plus to fix....4000 miles past the bumper to bumper warranty.
  5. Traction Control

    tried the instructions in the manual and the light and message went out...drove it a few miles..left turn..lights/message back on...took it to the dealer and after 2 hours of troubleshooting wires,as they said, found out a sensor is intermittent and will cost 400 plus to fix....4000 miles past the bumper to bumper warranty.
  6. Gets better....read the manual after driving to work...about 6 miles...traction light and message still on dash. Manual said to turn the wheel fully to 9 o'clock and then to 3 o'clock and then shut down...start up after 15 seconds or 15 minutes but I let it sit for 8 hours. Started it up and drove the 6 miles home and no traction light on or message...like it never happened...will the codes still be there or was there a glitch that was cleared by doing the manual directions. ? On a side note...I hate all this technology crap. Anything more than a PCV valve is a waste. My 2 cents.
  7. I read the manual..mine also lights up when losing traction...this stays on all the time now and sends a message across the dash that service is needed for traction control
  8. Traction Control

    it's NOT normal when the light stays on and I get a message to service the traction control. That's what I'm trying to find out: what's it all about.
  9. Traction Control

    triangle light with the squirley tires on the left side of dash came on while doing a left turn on perfectly dry roads. In 2 wheel drive. 2010 Silverado/5.3/4 wheel drive with 40,000 miles. Truck ha less than 200 miles in all wheel or 4 wheel drive as only used in slick weather and I don't drive alot in slick weather. I do engage it every month or so in warm weather to circulate any fluids. Maybe a mile or so then back to 2 wheel drive. Stopped at a store, shut truck off, started again after about 5 minutes and light stayed off all the way home. Distance of about 3 miles. Will watch it later on way to work. What's going on beside a potential service issue What is the service needed Estimated hours or cost What is the service to be done ? How soon to be serviced if light stays on? Can it be driven for a while until a service dealer gets me in ? Thanks in advance...Tom
  10. traction control light came on today. 37 degrees and perfectly dry roads. Truck has 40,000/2010 silverado/4 wheel drive/5.3. Is this a normal thing for the mileage. If the traction control requires service; what is done? Thanks in advance to all
  11. I used sunoco 89 in My 5.3.....was ok...use kwik fill 89 and got better mileage. Heard people say NOCO is best. Won't use Mobil as they are always higher in price than anyone else here in Western NY. Would like to see others ban it also. bit over 18 with sunoco...solid 20 with kwik fill......5.3...6 speed....308's....this is around town....got almost 14 towing a loaded one car trailer through PA...average speed...68 mph on highways
  12. I use sunoco 89 in My 2010 chevy and sunoco 93 in My super bee....have personally "banned" mobile as they are always higher also use Kwik Fill...supposedly U.S. Made
  13. E-85 Refueling Events

    computers....special tools....reasons why the small time mechanics and backyard mechanics are disappearing and soon the only place for service and repairs will be the "DEALER". In the 50's/60's I could tear an engine down and set it up with a hundred dollars worth of tools. AND still get 12 to 16 MPG....My how We have progressed.
  14. Towing With The 3.08 Rear End

    The setup trans/engine doesn't let it lug. It downshifts with no problem and running at 2100 rpm at 70mph plus is easilly done on straights and moderate hills. My experience has demonstarted to Me, the 308's are just fine, especially for the casual tow-er as the 308's give better MPG around town and non towing time. "Most" of US don't tow over a 1000 miles a year, most likely less. (of course there will be some who will post they tow ALL the time and rack up huge miles.)
